Buhari Gives APC States N2bn Each To Edge Their Development Above PDP

State Governors elected under the platform of All Progressive Congress, APC, on Tuesday meet with President Mohammudu Buhari in a closed-door meeting to seek lasting solution to the incessant crisis rocking the National Assembly. 

Report had it that the progressive governors agreed in their meeting to do everything within their powers to ensure that the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu is removed in office as the Deputy President of the Senate within the shortest time.

Briefing newsmen after their meeting, the Chairman of Progressive Governors Forum and Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, said that the Progressive Governors has decided to intervene in the crisis rocking the National Assembly.

A reliable source in the meeting told our correspondent that it was an anomaly for the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu who is in the opposition to continue to clinch the office of Deputy Senate President. 

The source also informed us that President Buhari approved N2bn each for all APC States so as to help them develop their States, thereby placing those States ahead of PDP controlled States. 

The action of Mr President was seen by many as baised politics especially in the present state of the National when many States are unable to pay salaries. This fund if released will definitely make APC governors look more hard working than their PDP counterparts, says feelers. 

Whatever be the case,  Nigerians are watching with Keen interest where this present administration of President Mohammudu Buhari is taking us.
